It's the Total Ripper Series for a reason it does it all.

My concern is chatter and washing out at speed or inclines. I appreciate the feedback.
Go ride the damn thing and you'll see what it can and can't do. I could spend all day buttering my 167 swallow tail summit R in my house doesn't mean I'd know how it rides on snow, it's like hand flexing a board.
